Are U-turns legal in Missouri?

I’m headed down to St. Louis in about a week to see a Blackhawks vs. Blues hockey game. I’ve never been to Missouri before, so I want to make sure I know the local driving laws. Can I legally make a U-turn there?

The Blues-Blackhawks matchup is one mired in hatred and competitiveness. For you, this means you heck of a game! If you’re cruising the streets of St. Louis or anywhere else in the state, don’t stress. **U-turns are legal in Missouri.
Before you make a U-turn, however, you should follow these safety tips:
  • Yield to all oncoming traffic
  • Don’t make a U-turn where prohibited by a traffic sign
  • Only make a U-turn from the left-most lane
Pro Tip As a native St. Louisan, I’m warning you to pay extra attention to traffic. Much of the inner city is like the Wild West on the streets, so always wait a few extra seconds before making turns or going through a green light or stop sign.
While a trip from Chicago to St. Louis is only about five hours, you have long gaps where nothing is around. For those places, towing and labor coverage can add some peace of mind. And if you want the cheapest rate, the only place to start is with the Jerry app.
